About Jazz Notes

Our music

Jazz Notes plays in various combinations from gentle instrumental duo to dynamic vocal octet covering a broad range of musical styles:

  • Moody and Gentle Jazz
  • Latin Standards 
  • Funky Pop 
  • Jazz Standards (some with a twist!)
  • Classical

At the core of Jazz Notes are Ann Craig (flute) and Kevin Blazé (guitar).

Since our formation in 2012, we’ve played with a range of musicians and backed various singers but we have a stable core of talented singers and instrumentalists on whom we call for special events.

We can put together a program to suit any function from creating an atmosphere with an intimate vocal or instrumental combo to a larger group with driving rhythms for an energetic party.
